Help Make Daddy the Play a Movie

November 18, 2013
Daddy the Play

We love a good Kickstarter campaign, especially when it creates something we want to see made. Not too long ago Dan Via and Gerald McCulloch brought their play, Daddy to New York and LA. For those who couldn't make it to either coast we've got some good news as the pair are looking to take the play from stage to screen and are using Kickstarter to help raise the production funds. For someone who loves a good daddy tale in any media, I'm hoping the pair hit their mark and can create this funny and heartbreaking play into an equally funny and heartbreaking film.

Here's a quick plot synopsis:

Colin McCormack (Gerald McCullouch) thinks he has it all — a great job, a steady stream of hot younger men, and a best friend, Stew (Dan Via), whose devotion he takes for granted. But when a charming and mercurial intern sweeps him off his feet, Colin sees a chance for something more: A family of his own. What he discovers instead is a shattering truth that may cost Colin everything — and everyone — he holds dear.

Take a look at Daddy's Kickstarter page and throw 'em some daddy love.

Do you wish there were more daddy relationships shown on screen?

I find "Daddy" to be an intriguing project. The actor and writer piqued my interest on Kickstarter. I would be curious how the film portrays the relationship dynamics between a younger and older gay man. I'm hoping that "Daddy" is available in print, as I'd like to read how the characters develop and the events transpire before seeing it either as a play or if the film is realized.

I would like to see complex characters. I have seen various gay films in which the characters were almost pristine. Sure, they liked fucking other men, but they seemed to lead charmed lives that didn't involve much adversity. There always seemed to be cookie cutter characters in which they were all in great shape, dressed slickly, and had great paying jobs. But that could just be my observation.


can not wait for this
